I swear if it's not one thing...

....then it's another.

My kiddos are sick again (in June!!!!).  They're not supposed to get sick in June.  In the winter, yes, but not in the Spring/Summer.  As a result, I'm behind on work.  And as a result of that, I'm behind on writing/book/author life.

And, of course, every time they cough (thank you nasal drip! grrr), I feel so bad for them. And, not much I can do for them because they're so little.

That's all for this week - just me venting. Lol.

Amazing Takeover Event!

I'm resigned myself to just saying I'll post once a week-ish.  Clearly, it's not happening every week...but...I'm pretty proud of myself for being fairly consistent in posting.  Not like those month-long spans where I was MIA.


The wonderful Tammy from Sassy Sisters Book Corner had a birthday this month.  And, in honor of her bday, she's hosting a 2-day takeover event that is PACKED (and I mean PACKED!) with amazing, amazing authors.  It's already 1/2 way through day 2, but it's not too late to catch it, scroll through the giveaways from earlier today and yesterday, and meet and check out some new authors and ones you already know about! And yes, I took over earlier today. I have 3 giveaways going on.

I don't know how others do it...

I'm friends with some other authors & even in a few reader groups for them. I hear their stories, and I swear everyone is juggling so much in life and pumping out books every 2 months, on average (or so it seems).  I'm lucky if I can get 1-2 out a year.

I will admit I'm a busy bee myself.  I have an almost 3-year old and a 1 year, and they take up a lot of my time.  My hubby leaves earlier then me and gets home later, so I'm the one getting them ready in the mornings & picking them up from daycare.  I work 8-5, and then when we get home, I feed them & play with them until it's time for bed.  Thankfully, the hubby cooks!!! YAY!!!!  But, I do the cleaning, and dishes, and laundry...etc. Basically, I do the chores.  Not to say the hubby doesn't try to help, but realistically, it's faster if I just do it (because I'm a bit of a control freak and I have specific ways of doing things) than if I show him how.  Sometimes, though, I'm too tired to care & however he does it, he does it. lol.  By the time I'm done with all this, I'm ready for bed.  I write nowadays when I have a few minutes to spare.

And yet, I know I'm not the only one with so many responsibilities.  So...I don't know how others do it.  But, I'm 100% envious.  And also, more power to them!  But for now...I've got one completed story that will be coming out soon - details to come as soon as I have them.  And I'm working on another.  Fingers crossed for me!

Okay, rant over...carry on ;) hehe
